On a second look I don't think this is a locale problem. I found bug 
#418811 which seems to be what you are seeing. Things you should check:

- version of the samba-common package (the bug was fixed in 3.0.25b-1)
- if you get similar stuff in other man-pages.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
